'souza talk about what a second term for the obama administration would look like. the president's policies would reduce america's global influence. it is an hour and 10 minutes. [applause] >> thank you. please sit down. i am excited and thrilled to be here. with barack obama in this election year, i think we are dealing with one of the most mysterious and odd figures ever to occupy the oval office. a few days ago i received a phone call. i didn't recognize the area code but the phone call was from kenya. it was actually george obama, the president's half brother. the youngest son of barack obama. he said dinesh, my 2-year-old son is in the hospital. he has a serious chest condition and i wonder if you would be willing to help me. are you at the hospital? he said yes. and the phone to the nurse. so he did and the nurse confirmed that george's son is sick with a chest infection. i would send him a thousand dollars by western union but before i hung up the phone i said isn't there anybody else he you can ask? why are you calling me? he said no. he said dinesh, this killed me, you are like a b
of florida today. he attended a rally earlier arguing that president obama has had enough time to get the economy back on track and that he hasn't done it. >> when he came in, he came with one party rule. president obama and his party controlled everything. the obama economic agenda did not fail because it was stopped. it failed because it was passed. >> today we learned who congressman ryan's debate practice partner will be. there he is right there, ted olson, former solicitor general under george w. bush, he will be playing the role of vice president biden in mock debates. congressman ryan and vice president biden will face off one time. starting next week, they will receive regular intelligence briefings from national security officials in the obama administration. and the obama campaign is out with a new ad today, its spoons to governor romney who has been asking americans if they are better off now than they were four years ago. >> here's where we are today. 30 months of private sector job growth creating 4.6 million new jobs. we're not there get, but the real question is whose p
obama policy of looking on the arab spring as a great glorious opportunity, we have helped liberate the libyans the egyptians, yemen, and we find our embassies in these cases as of friday, under attack. what happened is when the arab spring came along it liberated a lot of fores, ethnic national liz im, antiamericannism, all these forces, john. and the united states of america, there is a real dichotomy between the two of us, how do you get along when you can do a film, a video in los angeles that insults the prophet, something done in a basement, and it can set the entire region aflame against the united states? i think we have to look at our entire policy. >> eleanor? >> the implication is president obama could have somehow prevented these uprisings and i think that is a false assumption and some of the antiamerican sentiment that you see in egypt is because they think the u.s. policy was far too long on the side of mubarak and repression. they don't look at us as great liberate tores and i don't think the president is putting us forward as the force that so-called liberated the m
that they end up doing. going back to candidate obama four years ago it would be don't ask don't tell. says he wants to stop it and does stop it. category 2, i want to do it but not able to do it, closing guantanamo. category 3 candidate obama said i will carry out 300 drone strikes into pakistan but did it. what do you think -- give me an example of each of these moving forward. what do candidate romney and candidate obama and particularly the third category the unsaid that they have to do. you don't get away without that. you get the tougher question. how might the media do a better job of informing this debate? we seem to have a disconnect between what is said and what is reported and the american public's understanding. it hits a lot of issues whether it is policy or budget trends. recent data showed roughly almost half of americans don't realize we have the world's largest defense budget. a pretty odd phenomena in. >> thanks. in terms of what he will do i think he will reduce the size of the military. the next president. makes it harder to do either one. a president romney would reduce th
of which is "haunting legacy: vietnam and the american legacy from four to obama." he is a brookings scholar as well as a fellow of george washington university. a great line up a lot of expertise. we are looking for to hearing from them. we will turn it over to you for questions. >> peter has written the most important book in the country on robotics and the future of warfare. we hope our moderator will not be shy as we get these questions on technologies and other matters from you very shortly. we thank you for being here as well. instead of going to the redskins parade or playing hooky on the golf course on this gorgeous afternoon. today in september 10. tomorrow is the anniversary of 9/11. a brief word just to thank all those who have done so much to hold our country together and protect it in the last few years, including not only the men and women in uniform -- certainly them -- but also get first responders were making their communities work, as well as our allies. it is a day of remembrance, and thank yous. i want to say a couple of broad points about how to think about obama
fringe. sarah palin accused the president of palling around with terrorists. romney accuses obama of sympathizing with the attackers in the mideast. he not only exploits the range winlg of the right he is enjoying it. the birthers say obama isn't one of us. romney says obama sympathizes with the muslim killers. today, the state of kansas is deciding whether to let obama's name appear on the ballot. the birthers are still at it. they want more evidence of the president's legitimacy. his birth certificate isn't enough. his new ally, newt gingrich, talks of our food stamp president. one state after another tries to limit minority voting in the cause of making out the president as the other, the foreigner who needs in the words of romney surrogate, john sa into into, to learn how to be an american. the campaign is coherent, comprehensive. to convince the working class white guy obama is not one of us, one of them. a foreigner, a sue purper in league with the country's enemy. mitt romney is out there overseeing every word of it. ron reagan and cynthia cutler. i want to start with this,
the arab world. what did the attacks say about the the obama administration's foreign policy. and was mitt romney wrong to criticize the response? plus, as the presidential race kicks into high gear, will the presidential post convention bounce last? rumors of the republican tickets demise premature? welcome to the journal editorial report. i'm paul gigot. anti-american protests spread across the arab world this week over a film in defense of islam and the prophet muhammad following the murder thursday of four american diplomates. including united states ambassador chris stevens in benghazi, libya, in what officials believe was a terrorist attack designed to coincide with the anniversary of september 11th. and joining us dan henninger, mary anastasia o'grady and, with the anti-american protests across the arab world this week, tell us about our standing in that part of the world, and the ferment in arabia? >> well, i think, paul, what's happening here is where essentially we came in when the arab spring began in egy egypt, tunisia and spread to other countries and the feeling at that time
's attacks on romney's tax plan. we've got to add that the obama campaign is releasing this week, let's look at it. >> and won't reveal what's in his taxes and he won't tell you what he'd do to yours. to pay for huge new tax breaks for millionaires like him, romney would have to raise taxes on the middle class, $2,000 for a family with children says a nonpartisan report. you could lose the deduction for your home mortgage, college tuition, health care, how much would you pay? romney just won't say. . >> paul: all right, dan, first of all, let's just say that the use of the wall street journal in that ad was not sanctioned by this newspaper and we don't want to be associated at all with this argument, which i fundamentally think is false. when we get to that. but what about this ad and what it does to the romney campaign? >> well, i think the -- what the obama campaign is doing is just completely surfing under the zeitgeist, and obama separated himself from the unemployment and low growth rate and people have it in their head and an ad like that suggesting thhad the plan to ta berths that cur
, president obama said what was remarkable about the arab spring was that it wasn't about us, it was about them. it was about throwing avenue old dictators. well, whenever you traveled through the region there wasals -- always -- was always still a little bit of an undercurrent of about us, whether we were supporting democracy or imposing our values. this week it really became about us because these awful videos that you've seen were really what happens when american free speech meets american religious tolerance or intolerance. gwen: let's explain that. it's a trailer for a film we have heard about and relatively few people have seen which was crude and offensive and circulated widely apparently around the region. but was that really the animating thing? or was there resentment that had always been there, doyle? >> well, it's both. but in fact the film was getting around and was being actively prop 0 gated by two different kinds of people in egypt. it's a very strange story. one was a number of coptic christians, who have been 0 pressed -- oppressed and mistreated by some muslim militants
display of weakness. we are now seeing the fruits of this reckless rhetoric. this disaster, the obama administration can't get on the same page about whether or not we view egypt at this moment as an ally. watch this. >> you know, i don't think that we would consider them an ally. but we don't answer them an enemy. they are a new government that is trying to find its way. >> you are saying that the administration, state department, still regards egypt as a major non-nato ally and is a recipient of all that that entails? >> yes. >> sean: what is it? does the administration think that egypt is an ally or not? instead of answering, the white house talks in circles. when asked about the contradiction a spokesman said this, i think folks are reading way too much into this. ally is a legal term of art. and it all depends what "is" is. and we weren't having sex either. here with reaction, fox news contributor, our friend, charles krauthammer. welcome back. >> happy to be here. >> sean: i loved your line, we should have as the united states, told them to go straight to hell. we didn't. where
, invisible barack obama. (laughter) i am going to tell you something, back where we work at the daily show on the west side of he'll kitchen in new york city, you don't have to go far to see an old man yelling at an inanimate object. (laughter) but rarely is that object on stage at a national political convention. and almost never is that old man oscar winner clint eastwood. (applause) not that romney didn't get a chance to-- you know, i think he talked too. >> we americans have always felt a special kinship with the future. >> jon: yes, yes, we americans uniquely among earth's people, move forward in time. look, i don't-- (laughter) i don't care how many marco's rubio you put in between clint eastwood and mitt romney, romney ain't outshining this little playlet i like to call the old man and the seat. and here's why-- (laughter) it hurts-- here's why it hurts. it hurt these republicans bad because this convention like all conventions is a scripted and focused group fantasy and the display of eastwood's gran torino id was the very thing republicans had constructed the entire week to suppre
earlier arguing president obama missed his chance to get the economy back on track. >> when he came in, he came in with one party rule. president obama and his party controlled everything. the obama economic agenda did not fail because it was stopped, it failed because it was passed. >> today we also learned who congressman ryan's debate practice partner will be. there he is. ted olson. former solicitor general under president george w. bush. he will be playing the role of joe biden in mock debates. congressman ryan and vice president biden will face off just one time three weeks from now. meanwhile, the obama campaign is out with a new ad today. it's a response to governor romney who has been asking americans if they are better off now than they were four years ago. >> here's where we are today. 30 months of private sector job growth. creating 4.6 million new jobs. we're not there yet, but the real question is whose plan is better for you. the president's plan asks millionaires to pay a little more, to help invest in a strong middle class. >> we'll have more on these stories coming up. pr
